Trans* Stopping Violence Project-


 Through our anti-violence project we address trans-phobia, and raise awareness around inter-personal violence within the trans community.

We have a concentrated effort of addressing the increasing violence, often fatal, against trans and gender non-confirming individuals. 


We combat these issues by:

  • Expanding our peer support groups

  • Providing resources 

  • Providing safety plans and tips that we have found to be effective for Trans, Intersex, and Gender non-confirming individuals 

The day before Tony Mcdade was murder by a police officer he was attacked by 5 men because of his gender identity a transman. This is the reality that many trans individuals have to face violence for being themselves. As the country is protesting for #Black Lives Matter the voice of Black trans people aren't acknowledged and fought for the same. On May 27 Tony was murdered by a police officer in Tallahassee Florida. The national protest and recognition of his Life and Name have been excluded because of his gender identity. Even in his death the world is still misgendering him to well known for the trans community. 

We uplift and #SayHisName #Tony Mcdade#RIP KING# Black Trans Lives Matter #Black Transmen Are Black Men
